Inclusive Development International | Land Portal

Every year millions of people are displaced from their homes, lands and livelihoods in the name of development.

Disenfranchised from decision-making, poor and marginalized communities are forced to shoulder the costs of development and are thrust into deeper poverty.  This crisis is fueled by unaccountable political and economic institutions that promote harmful investment, trade and development projects that fail to safeguard people’s rights, preserve common resources and distribute benefits equitably.

We have been deeply inspired by people who have risked their lives and liberty resisting displacement and other human rights abuses caused by unjust development, unbridled greed and unchecked power. We have witnessed the destruction of entire communities whose struggles have become our own, but we have also seen how the world’s most powerful corporations can be held accountable by organized communities engaged in persistent, smart and strategic advocacy.

We founded Inclusive Development International in order to support the struggles of those fighting on the front lines for just and inclusive development.

Inclusive Development International works to make the international economic system more just and inclusive.

We support and build the capacity of grassroots organizations and communities to defend their land, natural resources and human rights against threats from harmful investment, trade and development projects.  Through research, casework and policy advocacy, we work to strengthen human rights regulation and accountability of corporations, financial institutions and development agencies.

IDI was established in 2011 as a project of Social and Environmental Entrepreneurs (SEE) a non-profit public charity exempt from federal income tax under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
